Cape Folk Architecture Exhibition – Souvenir Brochure

This exhibition was first shown at the University of Cape Town’s Irma Stern Museum in October 2004. The curators, contributors and organisers are all members of the Vernacular Architecture Society.

The exhibition traces the vernacular architecture tradition of the Western Cape through the links that exist between need, available materials and indigenous building knowledge, and locates the buildings within the landscape, both natural and man-made, to demonstrate the remarkable synergy that exists between form, materials and location.
